In the pause before the cookstorm, I am doing some hand-sewing, finishing up this set of felt ornaments. Like others who were little girls in the seventies, I'm fascinated by ornate felt ornaments after seeing my mother's creations. Back then they used bright acrylic felt, glue, sequins, and bright gold braid. This time around the fashion is for real wool and patient embroidery.
Patience is indeed called for, as on more than one occasion I've had to remind myself that I'm making these *for fun*. Having fun. Just a reminder, that's all.
I did the pink cup of cocoa first, because if you live at my house, you understand the importance of a big pink cup of cocoa, first thing.
And I'm bringing gingerbread girl over the home plate tonight. Then wrapping them up and enjoying Thanksgiving.
